VIRTUAL VISITS FOR 2020-2021

 

FULL-DAY VIRTUAL AUTHOR VISIT

3 Sessions

Cost:  $650

 

Tammi, a former teacher and library media specialist, loves to share her passion for reading and writing with students through her educational, entertaining, and interactive sessions.

 

For kindergartners and first graders, Tammi focuses on how books take people on adventures. For second and third graders, she explores finding ideas, shaping ideas into a story, and turning a story into a book. For fourth and fifth graders, she shares her top ten writing secrets which will help students create stories of their own. If, however, a writing workshop as opposed to a presentation for your older students is preferred, Tammi offers that option as well. 

 

Title:  BOOKS TAKE PEOPLE ON ADVENTURES

Audience:   K/1

Length:  30 minutes

 

Title:  BEHIND THE SCENES OF A BOOK

Audience:  2/3

Length 45 minutes (includes Q&A)

Audience:  4/5

Length:  45 minutes (includes Q&A)

 

Title:  WHAT’S THE BIG IDEA?

Kids always want to know where Tammi gets the ideas for her books. In this workshop, Tammi will unveil the ideas behind many of her books as well as share a wide variety of story starter strategies. Lots of brainstorming will ensue, and, as a result, students will leave this session with the beginning of at least one new story. 

 

***If you prefer a single session as opposed to a full-day visit, the cost for that session is $300.***

LATEST TESTIMONIALS:

 

“I had heard from other librarians in my district how wonderful Tammi Sauer’s presentations are, and she did not disappoint! Her boundless energy, enthusiasm, and creativity kept her audiences captivated. Each presentation was grade-appropriate, interactive, and relevant  as she shared how reading and writing go hand-in-hand. Tammi obviously loves what she does, and it shines through every word. Best of all, her books are gifts that keep on giving; they are absolutely delightful, and students of all ages can’t get enough of them. If you’re looking for a fun, effective author to visit your school, Tammi Sauer is an exceptional choice!”

                                                                                                                             -- Karen Berry, LMS at Hedgcoxe Elementary, Plano, TX

 

 

"Tammi Sauer is so incredibly dynamic and interactive that our district decided we must get to visit us again as soon as possible! Her presentations are geared towards different age groups and she always includes her student audience as part of the visit, often encouraging students to act aloud portions of her award-winning picture books. I heard students commenting, “She’s so funny!” or “I love that book!” as she described how she progresses through the writing process. The schools she visited this semester told me that their students truly took to heart Tammi’s advice for becoming a better writer and are applying her strategies to their own manuscripts. Tammi will knock your socks off with her energetic multimedia presentation and her obvious joy for young readers!"

-- Dr. Lori Franklin, Library Media Coordinator for Olathe Public Schools, Olathe, Kansas

              
"Tammi Sauer is a personable, fun and engaging presenter who has entertaining and informative presentations for every age group. She is full of energy and keeps the students in the palm of her hand. Our principal reported glowing compliments!"
